When the Lion Feeds | [Wilbur Smith]

When the Lion Feeds

Into the wilds of Natal in the 1870s are born Sean and Garrick Courtney, the twin brothers who could not be more different. Fate, war and the jealous schemes of a woman are to drive them even further apart. But as history unfolds a continent is awakening. And on its horizon is the promise of fortune, adventure, destiny and love.

Publisher's Summary

’François, how many men up at the face?' 'Cave-in.' François's voice was now hysterically shrill. 'Cave-in.' He broke Sean's grip and raced away towards the lift station, the mud flying from his gumboots. His terror infected Sean and he ran a dozen paces after François before he stopped himself. For precious seconds he wavered with fear slithering round like a reptile in his stomach; go back to call the others and perhaps die with them or follow François and live.

Into the wilds of Natal in the 1870s are born Sean and Garrick Courtney, the twin brothers who could not be more different. Fate, war and the jealous schemes of a woman are to drive them even further apart. But as history unfolds a continent is awakening. And on its horizon is the promise of fortune, adventure, destiny and love.

    I started with 'Those in Peril' by Wilbur Smith and enjoyed it so much I searched for other Wilbur Smith unabridged titles to try. When Lions Feed and Sound of Thunder are a joined story about Sean Courtney. These were every bit as good - akin to the detailed and eventful stories of Ken Follet. It does help if you have visited or lived in South Africa, but I was very impressed!

    I've read all the Wilbur Smith books several times as a young lad but after a recent holiday to South Africa I thought I'd re-visit the stories. I wasn't disappointed!!! great story and very well presented. I am now eagerly looking for more unabridged audiobooks in the series.

    well worth a credit!!

    "captivating and full of pace when required."
    Would you consider the audio edition of When the Lion Feeds to be better than the print version?

    at first I thought I was listening to a re-wright of ZULU. Then Duff came along and all changed. The story line gained pace and between the 2 main characters there was some exciting story lines. Then there was the Zulu slave of Sean. its amazing how not only the story line or the way John Lee delivered the story there was such emotion in the unsaid words that came over. I have now downloaded the second book ready for my next car trip.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't often find a book that I listen too where I have sat on the drive of my home just to get to the end of a chapter. the story line and narrator just hold you right until the end of the book. I look forward to listening to A Sparrow Falls.
